Texas changed from a one-party Democratic state to a one-party Republican state with the 1980 presidential election of Ronald Reagan. Conservative Democrats felt the national Democratic party had become too liberal and out-of-touch with issues facing many Texans and so became conservative Republicans. As the GOP took control of both houses of the legislature and the governor's office most of the time, laws and policies became increasingly conservative.

The people living in Texas before European contact had to survive in different conditions, from beaches to mountains, forests to deserts. A wide diversity of life existed. From the complex society of the Caddoes of East Texas, to the trading culture of the Antelope Creek society in the Panhandle, to the warlike, barely surviving society of the coastal Karakawas, Native Americans adapted to their surroundings.

People living in Texas were affected by the Mexican War for independence and the early struggles for a stable government in Mexico. Mexicans invited people from the Unites States to colonize using empresario grants. The purpose for the Mexican government was to have the Anglos (not Mexicans) deal with hostile Indians. Austin Moses, and when he died his son Stephen, got the first and most succesful of these grants and Anglo colonization began. People from the southern US came to Texas to raise cotton and many brought their slaves to do all the work. Over time, former US citizens grew frustrated with the Mexican government and began to want to make Texas part of the US.

The Texas Revolution was based on the desires of colonists from the US to retain the forms of government they were used to and the need to use slaves to make cotton-raising profitable. The revolution was over quickly with only a few battles. Texans expected to be annexed immediately into the US and when that did not happen, the scramble to set up the Republic of Texas began. The Republic lasted nine years and was never very successful. In 1845, Texas was finally annexed into the US as a state.

After the Civil War, Black Codes and violence were used to keep freedmen in their place. With the passage of Reconstruction Acts and the 13th, 14th, and 15th Amendments to the Constitution, rich white Democrats worked to "redeem" Texas, to put those in power before the war back in power after Reconstruction. The Ku Klux Klan emerged as a force to end Republican political power in the state.
